New York City-based Sims Metal Management Ltd. (SMM), through its Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) electronics recycling division, has acquired the assets of E-Structors Inc., based in Elkridge, Md. The company serves customers in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. In addition to electronics recycling, E-Structors provides document destruction services.
The newly acquiired site is the 15th recycling center for SRS in North America.
"With the acquisition of E-Structors, SRS continues to increase the size of its U.S. footprint," says Steve Skurnac, president of SRS Americas, based in Chicago. "Having a location near Washington, D.C., will allow SRS to not only build on the great partnerships we have with federal agencies but more efficiently service our existing government agreements, including our five-year Department of Defense contract."
He adds, "We are very pleased to welcome the E-Structors' remarkable employees and management team into the SRS family."
E-Structors was founded in 2003. The company operates a 160,000-square-foot facility and processes more than 22 million pounds of material per year.
